Legalise cannabis

Clearly a more controversial suggestion, but given the looming economic recession, serious consideration should be given to asking th UK govt to devolve powers with a view to decriminalise cannabis.

As a brand new industry, it is estimated to generate around 70 billion dollars a year as well as employ more people than the coal industry.

The cost of policing the illicit cannabis industry here already is not justifiable and has little tangible effect.

Why the contribution is important

There is very little areas in which to establish an entirely new industry. The proven economic benefits are visible in America already. The potential for such an industry in Scotland could prove to be an incredibly beneficial economic stimulus as we approach a deep recession.
